Pyometra is a serious infection of the uterus affecting both female dogs & cats. Learn the signs your pet may need to be treated immediately.

Signs your dog or cat may need surgery to remove the infected uterus (spaying):

Foul Smelling Vaginal Discharge
The discharge may be pus-like or bloody and can vary in color and consistency.
Enlarged Abdomen
You may notice her stomach seems swollen or distended. It's more noticeable in smaller dogs and cats.
Increased Thirst and Urination
The infection can cause changes in hormone levels, leading to increased drinking and urination.
Exhausted & Not Eating
They may seem overly tired, depressed, and/or have a decreased appetite.

If you suspect that your pet may have pyometra, it is crucial to seek veterinary care immediately. This is a medical emergency that requires prompt treatment, which typically involves surgery to remove the infected uterus (spaying). Left untreated, a pyometra can lead to severe illness, septicemia, and death.
